I just made a new cover - out of an old hardback.

I traced the nook shape and cut it out with an x-acto knife. I also cut tabs for the right side page buttons, power button and power supply & headphone jack.

I have pictures, but my camera is being rather uncooperative.

Hey William, definitely post some pics of your finished product.
I want to do this myself and would love to see how someone else did it.

Got my camera working


Closed



Open



Close Up


The notches for the on button and page buttons are not deep nor are they visible when the book is closed. The notch at the bottom is visible as I wanted to be able to plug the nook in without removing it. I have two clear corner stickers at the top holding the nook in place. The hole in the book is nook shaped and holds the nook rather snug.

Reading is quite natural feeling. I considered adding some closure, but haven't made up my mind on that yet. The salespeople at B&N loved it. Total cost was about 1.50 for the book at a thrift store - 3 bucks for the x-acto knife and spare blades - a bit of glue and a paintbrush. The whole thing took a few hours and I followed the essentials from a website

howto.rivers.pro/hollow-a-book/

So I cannot claim any originality.

I already had an expensive one, but still prefer this one. The local B&N nook kiosk workers love it and several have made one.

Great idea; maybe throw it in big classic hardback (look like you love classics when reading spy-novels on the nook)...
